Reviewer: Rarebit fiend - favoritefavorite - December 8, 2013
Subject: A bad digitization, but a good resource
I am grateful that this has been made publicly available, and do not wish to diminish the work done to bring it to the digital domain; I do however feel it is important to comment on the digital conversion of this document which was done in a sub-standard manor that has significantly degraded its value as a cultural artifact.

It has been converted to a largely vector format (as best I can tell) which re-renders it's text as actual characters, thus making it digitally searchable, however this process was implemented quite poorly and has caused major damage to the images - rendering them in a bizarre digital fashion. This is especially sad because the Illio is as much a book of design and imagery as it is one of text, if not more so, and through the botched digitization it will loose a large part of its appeal to many.

I can only hope that those who uploaded this might consider uploading the original images (captured with an excellent camera if the documentation is correct) as a high resolution PDF WITH OUT THE VECTOR CONVERSION of the first. I am certain that these would be of much greater value to many who are using this reference to find images of past alumni.
